Water: Simply put, water is your lifeline. 60% of the body is water. It is the basis of everything that happens in your body. It helps supply nutrients to your body, helps improve skin, internal cleansing, and even promotes weight loss. So drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and have 2 glasses of water as soon as you wake up. This will kick start your body's internal systems, and your metabolism.Almonds: A handful of almonds are smart snack to incorporate in your daily routine because almonds are high in protein, heart-friendly due to high levels of good monounsaturated fat and very filling. They are high in vitamin E and magnesium, a mineral that helps produce energy, regulate blood sugar levels, and can help improve blood flow. Loaded with fiber, calcium, potassium, riboflavin, just a handful of almonds a day is a great way to ensure you’re getting the nutrition your body needs. You can have them raw or soaked. If you soak them, eat them with their skin on to get maximum nutrition.
Tea: Tea is loaded with antioxidants that are very beneficial for your health. To get the maximum health benefits, have your tea without milk or sugar. This can be black or green tea. Besides antioxidants, green tea has shown heart health benefits, it helps in weight loss, and can even help in protecting your teeth and skin.
Yogurt: It is a staple in most households. It contains calcium, which keeps your bones and teeth strong and healthy. Further, it is rich in “good bacteria” that helps maintain gut health and helps you to process food and absorb nutrients better. It is also a good source of protein. Just 1 cup of yogurt provides phosphorus, potassium, zinc, riboflavin, vitamin B12 and protein. Regular consumption of yogurt has also shown that it helps with reduction of belly fat. Just make sure your yogurt isn't heavily sweetened. If you like it sweet, add some fruits and chopped almonds in it.
Apples: Apples contain both insoluble and soluble fiber, which not only make them filling, but also help reduce cholesterol to keep the heart healthy and reduce the risk of heart disease. Further apples contain antioxidants that can help reduce your risk of cancer.
